I've had this car seat for a little over a month, and I am completely satisfied. The biggest thing is it fits in my Toyota Corolla, with room for an average adult to sit in the front passenger seat. With his infant seat, I had to have the seat all the way to the front. Now, the front passenger seat is able to go about half way back. The seat is also roomy, and my son seems comfortable. We've even had to wash the cover and had no issues removing it. While it's not always the easiest, I do not have near the trouble with the release as some of the other reviews.
I bought this a while ago so I had plenty of time to test it and we went from rear facing to forward facing with ease, it can also be washed quite easily as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I bought a contender 65 in March 2016 for my then 1.5 yo son and loved it. It was involved in an accident and I replaced it with another contender. I bought another contender for my then 9 mo daughter in October 2019. It’s a well built, solid car seat with all the basics I need without any unnecessary extras. I use one in each of our vehicles for my daughter, rear facing, and know that these seats will stand up to the abuse my kids will give them until she outgrow the seats, in another 7-8 years.
We really like this car seat. We use it as our travel (haven't tried it on airplane yet) and seat for 3rd car/nanny/grandma car. It is easy to install, take out, tighten and loosen harness on my almost 3 year old. Cup holder is helpful too.
I love this carseat! My son had outgrown his infant carrier and we needed somethine reliable but affordable. He loves it! Very sturdy, comfortable, and he finally stopped crying every time we are in the car once i put him in this!
